Who we are:

Food Educators is an EIT Food programme that provides teachers with fun, creative and interesting activities to engage young people, mainly schoolchildren. Our easily accessible, science-based food education materials enhance students' learning so they can become better informed, conscious consumers of the future.

We harvest new insights into how to deepen learning experiences around food, promote health and sustainability, and motivate future generations to pursue careers in the agrifood sector. Our programme focuses on inspiring leadership, conscious consumerism, food science literacy, entrepreneurial mindsets, and vocational possibilities among young people aged 9 to 18 years old.

Our vision:

A world where all young people have access to food education and are aware of exciting and innovative agrifood careers.

Our mission:

To support educators to teach, engage and inspire young people about the food they eat and consider a career in agrifood.

“The handbooks are very practical and practice-oriented and they are motivating and inspiring for teachers! They provide a great foundation for teachers to build on.”

“All lesson plans that I tried are usable and provide a sound methodology for bringing in a new topic to the classroom: food. From now on, it is up to us to improve and adapt them for our students!”

“The handbooks matched my expectations, the lesson plans are easy to use, even with special needs students.”

“The material inspired me as a teacher to connect to local food stakeholders. I am motivated to think about the lesson plans further and adapt them to our students.”
